Nick Lachey – whose split from Jessica Simpson was announced Wednesday – has been spending some quality time with the boys. Most recently, he waved the starting flag at the Ford 400 NASCAR Nextel Cup, and the racecars weren't the only ones making the rounds that weekend in Florida.

Lachey and fellow newly single pal A.J. DiScala hit Miami Beach nightclub Mansion at around 1 a.m. Saturday, unwittingly walking into a party hosted by Hustler publisher Larry Flynt and porn star Ron Jeremy. Once they realized they were at an X-rated bash, Lachey and DiScala beat a hasty retreat.

The next night, after the NASCAR race in Homestead, Fla., Lachey (sans wedding ring) hosted a private party at the hot new South Beach hotel The Setai with brother Drew and DiScala. About 30 revelers, including NASCAR driver Michael Waltrip, drank Grey Goose vodka at the courtyard bar, while Lachey occasionally left his group of buddies to chat with one pretty blonde guest.

Just after 1 a.m., Lachey and his crew headed to a private NASCAR party hosted by racer Jeff Gordon at a waterfront home on the exclusive Hibiscus Island near South Beach. There, they checked out the "Destiny" yacht docked by the house before returning to the party, where the group jammed to a set by Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein alongside Lennox Lewis, Marcus Schenkenberg, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Johnny Damon and Latin star Ana Cristina. The Lachey posse finally called it a night around 2:15.

A Surreal Wedding
Adrianne Curry and Christopher Knight revealed their engagement on the season finale of My Fair Brady, but Knight actually proposed in June, he told us at the opening party for the Paige Denim boutique in West Hollywood. "It was a quiet engagement," he said. Since then, "I've noticed that she just listens to me slightly less. By the time I'm married, there will be nothing left to listen to."

The couple haven't set a wedding date, but Curry told us the ceremony will be "gothic" and in an "old-school cathedral." "My family is very Catholic," she said. "I don't believe we can be married Catholic – he's twice-divorced." Guests will likely include their Surreal Life castmates and Knight's fellow Brady Bunch-ers. "They'll all be invited," he said. "We'll see who shows."
